Trend: Clever Rings of Animals Wrapped Around Your Finger


Today, after seeing Etsy’s Facebook post about the hilariously awesome sloth ring, pictured above and created by Curious Burrow, it reminded me of a trend that seems to be popping up everywhere. Animal wrapped rings have recently become the rage, especially on the popular social sharing site Pinterest. (You can find our Pinterest page, here.)

Many of the images direct you to a site called Luulla, a handmade marketplace similar to Etsy. There, you’ll find two major retailers, Animal Wrap Rings and Dotoly, selling these unique pieces of jewelry for prices that range from $10 to $25. It’s a small price to pay for a little happiness on your finger. (I bought the Sloth. Loved what Etsy wrote on their post: “Yes, adorable sloths, you may rest on my fingers. Squee!”) I want them all.
